Sep 17, 2018 • NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) group will be hosting a two-day data training webinar starting at the end of this month. The training is intended for local, regional, state, federal and international organizations that wish to assess land use changes and vegetation conditions using satellite imagery.

From the ARSET announcement:
Land cover changes can impact many areas of life. These changes can affect deforestation, ecological communities, wildfire extent, and urban growth. This advanced series will focus on using satellite imagery to map changes in land cover. Attendees will learn change detection methods, including image subtraction and classification. They will also conduct their own change detection analysis. This training will use QGIS, the R statistical program, and the Random Forest algorithm. Both sessions will feature a lecture, time to complete a hands-on exercise, and time for questions.
